In the last few days we couldn't help but notice how clanbase has nearly 30 private Quake Live servers to their disposal to run CB competitions.
This made us curious if it would be reasonable for us to ask 1 or 2 private servers for #qlpickup.eu as well. Just for the sake of refiring some of that interest in those pickup games Quakers have come to love in the past few years.
You might have noticed the old pickup channel #euqlctf has been traded in for a new one at #qlpickup.eu (quakenet). Why such a drastic and seemingly unnecessary act? The main reason is the fact that #qlpickup.eu can offer us both TDM and CTF games, and later possibly even more modes. The channel name can include just about any possible quakelive gametype and isn't limited by the tag "CTF" which #euqlctf held in it's name.
Naturally such a big change comes at a risk. #euqlctf had already become quite a popular pickup channel, with regular games and a great community. So why decide to take the risk of blowing this all anyway?
- Keep CTF & TDM together and create a new general pickup channel (56%, 24 Votes)
- Separate CTF & TDM and let a new TDM pickup channel emerge (37%, 16 Votes)
- Just host TDM in #euqlctf (7%, 3 Votes)

We'd like to see our community prosper and to do just that we need the help of you, the community! Even if our primary goal is to be the place to be for European CTF games, we can not and must not forget our TDM friends out there.
You can find us @ #euqlctf on quakenet where you can play quakelive ctf matches in a pickup format. Dont forget to read read the rules before you start.
We will also try to keep you updated on the current events in the QuakeLive CTF (pickup) community, so don't forget to check back!
update (01/10/2008): #euqlctf has changed to #qlpickup.eu on quakenet.
